I talked a bit about the CinchItUp Club page that I created on FaceBook last post, but here is my first photo upload to that page.  It’s been 4 weeks since I started Cinch and I have lost over 10 Lbs.  I will be posting how many inches I’ve lost once I find my measuring tape. LOL!  But for now, I leave you with the visual loss I have experienced.  I am passionate about loosing weight, and also helping others in their journey.  I would love to have anyone that is loosing weight or wanting to lose weight to join my FaceBook page.  I want to see people succeed and achieve their goals.  So let’s team up and keep each other motivated!

Loosing Weight is a Cinch!

14 09 2012

As you have probably noticed from my previous posts, I’m focusing on weight loss lately!  I will be posting pictures next week of my first month doing Cinch (Shaklee Weight Loss Program).  So far I have lost 8 pounds in 3.5 weeks!  Not only have I lost weight, but I’m loosing inches.  In fact last night was the first time in years that I have been able to put my actual wedding ring on!  It’s an amazing feeling seeing the transformation.

But not only am I loosing weight, I am starting to run more regularly.  Last week I did an 8.4 mile and a 7.1 mile run.  Both of which I felt great doing.  It has motivated me to look into doing a triathlon next spring and possibly more next year.  It’s amazing the feeling that comes from freeing yourself of the bondage which is being overweight.  I’m looking for people that have the same vision, to join with me to keep each other motivated on the path to health.  If you have already lost weight, and have some insight for the rest of us, I want you to share!  If you need help in setting goals, lets get it done!  Wherever you stand right now, if your vision is to get healthy or help others get healthy please join me and let’s start a positive trend in our country!

If you would like to join me, and help motivate each other in the quest to loose weight I’ve created a Facebook page located here.

https://www.facebook.com/CinchItUpClub

The goal of the page is to give an open forum to anyone looking to loose weight.  It will also have ideas on meals, training, products, and tools to help in your quest!  Please join me, and let’s get the weight loss revolution going as a team!

Summer Joy

25 06 2012

Have you ever noticed that when it is summer, more people are smiling and seem to be enjoying life?  I mean you get that some in the spring and fall, but it just seems to me that when winter comes everyone becomes blahhh.

So what is it about summer that makes such a difference?  Is it the warmth?  The green?  The sun?  What is it?  I personally love spring, summer, and fall.  Sometimes I actually enjoy winter, but not as much.

Where am I going with this?  Well, it seems to me that with everyone in a “better” mood in the summer, that businesses would flourish at that time of year.  Like I have mentioned earlier in my blog, when we are in an upbeat mood, and happy we are more effective at our jobs.  Or does summer have a different effect on our job performance?  It is so nice outside, that you want to be out there and the knowledge that you have to work makes you depressed?

Once again, my point is that if we can find something that motivates us to be in a “great” mood our job performance, family performance, and lives in general will be more enjoyable.  So find whatever it is that makes you happy and make it work for you!

If there is one thing in this world that I absolutely love and will always put a smile on my face, it would have to be first off my family.  But also, sunsets!  Sunsets are one part of life that I can never get enough of.  We were just recently on vacation (hence the reason this blog has been sitting) and no matter where we were at the time of the sunset, I wanted to see it.  That’s just how I am, the beauty of the sun passing the horizon is something I will never get sick of and something that can motivate me from day to day!

Find what motivates you and keeps you upbeat and life in all aspects will be spectacular!

Happiness is a state of being!

5 04 2012

In life we are blessed with so many different choices.  One of which is how we look at our life.  Do we go through the day dreading every task or chore, or do we embrace the fact that we are alive and enjoying another day of life?  Since you are sitting at your computer or on your phone or iPad, let’s try something.  In my last post I talked about Smiling and the effect that it can have on yourself and others.  Let’s try putting together Happiness, and Smiling as a little drill.  If you are like me sitting here, you probably have a blah face.  Meaning you aren’t smiling or frowning, just being blah.  Let’s try putting a smile on your face………….see how that feels?  Doesn’t it almost instantly change your demeanor?  If we can all work on smiling, and remembering all of our blessings we will begin working our way to happiness.  Happiness is not just when you get a new car, or toy, or outfit, it is something that can be had at all times.  It is a matter of controlling our thoughts and creating an environment for thoughts of good things that we have in life, and removing the thoughts that will bring us down.

How much more will we accomplish if we can work with a smile and an understanding that we should be happy that we can work?  I would go out on a limb and say we can accomplish considerably more when you attack a job with a good attitude.  So as I conclude my thoughts for the day, I’d like to challenge all of you, and myself to try and keep a smile on our faces as much as possible the next couple of days.  I would love to hear comments or thoughts on your experiences with trying this.  But for now, have a great rest of the day and remember smile and be happy!
